Nitpicking really - but bathroom/lavatory needs a stronger extractor fan.
You also really need some way of drying you towels and swimwear easily after a session in the pool/spa/sauna.
I only gave a "fair" to location because it is a bit "in the middle of nowhere" BUT if you intend a lazy time in the leisure area that is of no consequence. Gloucester, Stroud, Forest of Dean and Cheltenham all in 20 mins driving.
We have every intention of going back when we are able. Loved it!
Bedrooms comfortable, lounge area relaxing, kitchen well-equipped for own cooking.
Well-designed, the wooden staircase leads up from the kitchen/lounge but takes up minimal living space.
Plenty of towels.
The huge plus is your use of the adjoining leisure facility (just though an inside door) where there is a warm swimming pool of approx 12 metres, 1.2 metres depth and an easy to remove and replace electrically-worked cover. Our boys loved playing volleyball over the net in the pool.
In a separate adjacent room is a lovely 6-person spa bath with good variable controls, and in another room, a small but effective sauna.
We slept well, some people comment here about a) passing trains which are fairly close, and b) a cockerel which crows in the morning. Neither made any real difference to our quality of sleep. I also read some reviews criticising the slightly unkempt nature of the back yard, but a few kids toys, a part tumbledown shed and a netted trampoline, plus 3 small chicken houses, were of no consequence to us. We loved the residence we hired.
Parking right outside your entrance door, and a covered well-sheltered semi-outside area with barbecue, table and 4 chairs which should be great in good weather.
Wi-fi (other than a short blip outage which was soon fixed) is excellent throughout. Heating good.
The owners are adjacent: they are friendly and helpful people whom we felt would do anything to make you happy and comfortable.
Hint:- take dressing gown and flip-flops for moving between accommodation and the pool/leisure area. It was hard not to tread a bit of wet back through.
